Living in Europe im not entirely sure who the Nosram US distributer is or which stores deal with them in the US, but the Nosram Matrix Evo is the same as the LRP Sphere Competition 2007, which i guess is pretty easily available in the US.

Nosram was bought out by LRP so the Nosram is identical to the LRP.

Lots of press people have pics, but Vesa has asked us not to publish before he does - we'll all have to wait!

The car is nothing radical - a 12L4 front end with a very nice machined back end. All set very low, and with a trick little adjuster for the T-bar to vary roll rate. It looks very nice. HTH

The Euros 2007 was a fabulous event. The organisation was the best ever, including a banquet with indoor fireworks! The second and third A Final legs were simply the best racing you'll ever see. Andy Moore jumped the start, stopped, went again, got a stop/go, and ended up 3/4 of a lap down on the leader and dead last. He drove from there to win the leg by 1/3 of a lap!

In the third leg, Fischer, Griffiths, Ahoniemi and Hadberg drove nose to tail for six minutes, swapping places. Only one collision in that time, for which the perpetrator waited for the other one to recover, and then sayed away until they re-caught the leaders, and then started all over again. Fantastic!

I just noticed a countdown timer that has appeared into V-Dezign website (http://www.v-dezign.net). Looks like we are going to get some pictures and more information soon.

someone made a comment in the 12th forum a few pages back that the Carpet Ripper is similiar to the Jari car and your comments could be used to describe Jari's car also.

Yes, that's the one! I think you'll find that the pictures we are all waiting for will be little different to that one!! (is there a smilie for 'yawn'? )

At the Euros the majority were running brushless. I think we worked out that all of the top 30 were.
